University joins global technology company
19 December 2016
Canterbury Christ Church University’s School of Law, Criminal justice and Computing is working with the Juniper Networks Academic Alliance (JNAA), a global scheme which aims to establish ongoing relationships, between academic institutions and Juniper Networks, to support a range of technology studies.
At the end of November, Moni Moni-Nwinia from JNAA’s Education Services, visited the University and gave a seminar to students and staff outlining the educational advantages and research benefits of joining.
Reza Mousoli, Director for the School’s Stakeholders’ Engagement, who is leading the initiative, said: “In the new competitive climate, alliances of these kind are vital for recruitment and retention of students.”
Staff benefit from the alliance through research collaboration opportunities on topics such as developments of computer security in fighting cybercriminals and protection of critical information assets.
Dr Dominic Wood, Head of the School of Law, Criminal Justice and Computing, said: “We are aiming to sign an agreement with Juniper in 2017 to enhance the delivery of our programs and create new opportunities for industry based research activities for the University.”
